2013 was the year of many things. New relationships were formed. Old relationships were lost. Lessons were learned and challenges were made. With all this, moments were remembered. Looking through these images, I remember every wedding and every shoot… and I remember the little things. I remember the breeze on the cliffs in San Diego, and how it lightly swept through a bride’s hair. I remember the fresh smell of rain that ended right before an outdoor wedding in Long Beach. The soft look given by a soon-to-be bride to the love of her life during an engagement session and the laughter as another couple battled the cold strong winds on what was to be a warm fall day.
Thank you, everyone, for allowing me to photograph you and remember the love we all share.Pin It
Jill has one of the warmest personalities you ever will see. The fact that she found someone worthy of her makes me so incredibly happy.
Here’s to Jill and Matt.
About a month and a half ago I received an email from Madeline. They were eloping (!!!) in Louisville on July 3rd.
The only problem? I was flying out that very day to photograph a wedding in San Diego. I relayed this to Madeline, who in turn asked me when I would have to be at the airport. We emailed back and forth a couple times working out a way for me to photograph their elopement while still making my afternoon flight.
Witnessing these two exchange their vows with a handful of family in the courthouse is why I feel so fortunate to call myself a wedding photographer. The happiness and love is so evident that I felt it again and again as I edited their images weeks later.
Ever since this wedding, the first thing that comes to mind when I catch a cab now is the feeling I had when jumping into a taxi from their brunch reception at 21c Museum Hotel. And I smile.
One of just her.
One from kind of far away.
One of them content.
One that’s kind of weird, which may be why I love it.
